elijah, These is happening all around us with the young, I have to kids, one is 14 and the other is 19. They sometimes tells me how some of there friends just get this of that which I do not do for them. My 19 year old is starting to real understand how bad it is that this is happening. She is working part time and goes to college full time. Today she left at 7:30am to go to college and work and will get home at 8:30pm to take a bath, eat and study some more and then go to sleep to start all over again tomorrow. She is learning what many are not and will do very well in life.
Sure I would love to give her everything but what will that teach her? It is not easy to be a good parent and teach your kids.
